The advantages of using Ethanol blended fuel include savings in foreign exchange along with reduced environmental pollution. Biomass based ethanol also helps increase the proportion of Green Energy in the conventional fossil fuel transportation industry and sets the pace for upcoming Green Hydrogen economy.
